O Shot is the injection of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) prepared by taking the patient’s own blood to the clitoris and G spot with a special method. PRP facilitates sexual arousal and orgasm by increasing blood supply and sensitivity with the effect of growth factors it contains. “What is O Shot, which is a kind of genital PRP application? How is it done? Who is it suitable for?” You will find answers to such questions in this article.
It was the first time that the application of PRP in the vagina and clitoris could be used for the treatment of patients with anorgasmia, sexual reluctance and dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse). It was claimed by Charles Runels in a pilot study that included 11 patients. Later, this application was registered by him with the trade name ‘O Shot’ (Orgasm Vaccine).
What is an Orgasm?
Orgasm is the peak reached as a result of intense sexual pleasure and arousal in sexual intercourse. At this peak, which comes out emotionally in the relationship, the uterus and vagina perform orgasm with their second rhythmic contractions. After these rhythmic contractions, sexual pleasure and relaxation occur.
Inability to Orgasm Treatments
The cause of orgasmic disorders is mostly psychological and benefits from sexual therapy. However, in some cases, there is a problem in the stimulation of the organic clitoral complex. The lower the arousal threshold, the easier the orgasm function will be.
Energy-based treatments such as regenerative and laser vaginal rejuvenation are also available recently to stimulate the clitoral complex and intensify orgasm. O Shot, which is a kind of genital PRP procedure, also known as ‘orgasm vaccine’ is one of these methods.
What Is That Shot? About the Orgasm Vaccine!
O Shot, or ‘Orgasm Vaccine’, is the application of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to the clitoral complex with a special method. PRP is the plasma part prepared from the person’s own blood by centrifugation. It contains growth factors. Thanks to the growth factors it contains, PRP renews the cells in the area where it is applied and increases blood supply. The neural stimulation of the area with increased blood supply and sensitivity will increase accordingly.
O Shot Stages
In O Shot application, 15 cc of blood is taken from the patient’s arm first. Then, this blood is transferred into a special PRP tube, which is a sodium citrate derivative anticoagulant. The type of PRP placed in the centrifuge is centrifuged at 2850 rpm for 9 minutes (This centrifuge speed and minute may vary depending on the brand of the tube used).
After centrifugation, light yellow plasma will form at the top of the tube and a red colored area rich with red blood cells will form at the bottom. The lower 20% of the light colored plasma (close to erythrocytes) is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), and the upper 80% is PPP (Platelet Poor Plasma). The valuable part is the platelet and the PRP part, which is rich in growth factors, and this part is applied to the desired areas by injecting it with an injector. In some cases, the collected blood is centrifuged twice and made ready for injection (double spin).
On average, 1.5 cc of PRP is obtained from 15 cc of blood. The most valuable part of PRP is the area closest to the erythrocytes, called the buffy coat with its cloudy appearance. Thanks to the white blood cells in the Buffy coat, it has a white, cloudy appearance and acts like an antibiotic.
Under optimum conditions, there should be at least 1,000,000/ml platelet in PRP. Higher platelet counts may not affect wound healing positively, but may also affect it negatively. During the PRP preparation process in our clinic, the obtained plasma is kept under ultraviolet light for 10 minutes (photoactivation), thus increasing the effectiveness of PRP.
Growth factors (growth factors) in platelets in blood plasma play a very active role in stopping bleeding, wound healing and tissue regeneration. For this reason, it has been used in many fields of medicine, especially in recent years. It has started to be applied frequently in the fields of orthopedics, dentistry, sports medicine, urology, gynecology, dermatology, eye, plastic surgery, anesthesiology and cosmetic medicine. In the field of cosmetics; It is used quite frequently, especially for facial rejuvenation and hair transplantation.

No. Since it is prepared in a sterile way from the person’s own blood, the procedure has no risks or side effects. Studies have also shown that a small amount of blood taken does not change a person’s hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelet count.
Can the Orgasm Vaccine be Given to Everyone?
